ViewMaster – they’re still around, custom views

@The NYC Toy fair 2008 it was reassuring to see ViewMaster, I figured they were long gone since the TuberNet has since dominated both eyes for while – but they’re around and have a unique line of ViewMaster products. For the most part it looks like they’re promoting custom runs, makes sense – they’ll even send you out a 3D camera to take the best photos and the once you’re done you’ll get the ViewMaster round wheel, viewers, etc. I’d like to do some of these for Maker Faire. Would be cool to see them develop a video version at some point… (here’s a magazine that did something cool).
